From the publisher: "'Milach’s search is the kind which is almost impossible to visualize. And yet, what he has here, is a fascinating and subtle journey into the loss of direction, into the sad and beautiful connection with your country.' Liza Faktor. Over a period of several years, Polish photographer Rafał Milach accompanied with his camera seven young people living in the Russian cities of Moscow, Yekaterinburg and Krasnoyarsk. In intimate pictures, he portrays a generation caught up between the mentality of the old Soviet regime and the up-and-coming Russia of the Putin era. In this album, bound in highgrade synthetic leather, these snapshots of contemporary Russian life are accompanied by sensitive interviews with those portrayed.". Bookseller Inventory # 25
